The Challenges of Generational Change in Asia

Published on


We acknowledge the Ngunnawal Peoples, the traditional owners of the land on which Canberra, the capital of Australia has been built. We thank them for their long custodianship of this land. We pay tribute to all members of the Ngunnawal Nation, past and present. This book has developed from a workshop held in Canberra under the auspices of the Association of Asian Social Science Research Councils (AASSREC). Every two years the members of this Association send delegates to a week long workshop to discuss issues of common social importance in Asia. For this meeting, the thirtieth anniversary of the association, it was decided that the problems facing young people in a rapidly changing culture were a major issue for all of our member states. The workshop was held in Canberra, Australia, where at the commencement Mrs Agnes Shea, a Ngunnaawal Elder and representative of the United Ngunnawal Elders Council, welcomed delegates to her country.
